Photograph at Armenian Genocide Protest Outside 92Y in Manhattan

Photo of Armenian Women from Trabizond all murdered except for second from left (seated), c.1915. The protesters are speaking up against ADL Executive Director Abraham Foxman’s speech tonight at the 92Y. Foxman and the ADL refuse to support the Armenian Genocide resolution in the US Congress, citing bogus excuses, including the “safety” of Jews in Turkey. For more photos from the protest visit here & here, and for background on the issue, visit here.  Jewschool has some great pics posted on Flickr.

The photo is a reproduction of an original image archived at the Armenian Genocide Museum in Yerevan, Armenia.

  1. wow, what a stunning photograph. really drives home what’s at stake here. why is this so hard for people to accept? why does our govt and others have such a problem admitting to an actual reality, that’s in the PAST for crying out loud. We seem to have no trouble calling Darfur, a genocide. So why is it so impossible to understand what happened to Armenians. I know I don’t understand all the ins and outs, politically or otherwise, but I can’t say any of those things should outweigh calling reality reality. As far as I know what it is that entails, “genocide”, I believe the Armenian people have suffered this. So let’s give that a dignity in calling it what it is, instead of playing semantic games so many years later. It’s shameful.
